To log into Hotmail, go to the Microsoft account log-in page and enter your Hotmail e-mail address and associated password. If the e-mail address is already saved on the log-in page, select it and enter your password. Click "sign in."
If the account log-in page shows a different saved e-mail address, click "sign in with a different Microsoft account." If using a shared computer, make sure not to check the box that says "keep me signed in" if you don't want another user having access to your account.
Hotmail converted to Outlook.com, affecting over 400,000,000 worldwide accounts. Improvements and upgrades to the e-mail services include a more modern interface and two-factor authentication.
